Ego Trip

LP (Item 17843) Mercury, 1984 — Condition: Very Good

Outside of his early singles, this LP features some of our favorite Kurtis Blow tracks. The production is similar to that big beat Linn Drum/DMX style that the 1983-85 Profile artists used. With "8 Million Stories" – featuring Run-DMC, "AJ Scratch"– featuring the oft-sampled "Up in the Bronx where the people are fresh...", "Basketball" – about all the NBA stars of the time, "Ego Trip" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a few specks of residue on the front.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Profile, 1988. Very Good
A once underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall terse style (hence the title) that was always more effective than it got credit for at the time – and it's ultimately the crew's last solid beginning-to-end LP!

A landmark album that hardly needs any introduction – as it's one of the most famous soundtracks, if not soul records, of the 70s!
